Question about 2001 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Suburban won't start, we don't believe it's the starter

I have a 2001 suburban. About a month ago it would not start. It did not click or crank. All the lights and radio still worked. We charged the battery anyway and it did not start. I went back about 30 minutes later and it started. I have had no problem with it not starting until recently. I went to start it and nothing. Again I charged the battery, still nothing. Lights, radio and dvd still work. Several hours later, it started. The next morning, same thing it won't start. The cables to the battery were checked and they are on good and they are clean. The alternator is new as well, so this is not the problem. My husband hit the starter a few times with a hammer and still nothing. Can someone please help me. I can not afford to have it towed to a shop to have this checked.

Starting problem (see details), on 1998 Town & Country.


Check your battery cables and starter cables especially the connectors and bolts under the hood. The bolts and connections could be loose or corroded. Check the connections near the battery and on the battery since many times mechanics mess with these the most. My guess is something is loose if it starts well most times, but fails occasionally. Did you look for blinky codes or DTCs? A '47' (or P0562) could mean a bad battery or alternator, and a '12' (or P1684) could indicate intermittent connections. Do the dome lights dim or stay well lit when the clicking is heard during cranking? If so, then the issue is most likely near the battery and if not then the issue is more likely near the starter. Good luck. There are a lot of wires under the hood.

With or without the fob, you should get lights. Check the installation and the battery voltage between the engine metalwork and fuses.

IT COULD BE A BAD ALTERNATOR. JUMP START THE CAR, REMOVE THE JUMPER CABLES, PUT A VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY. MOTOR RUNNING, VOLTAGE SHOULD READ 13.90 TO14.80. IF IT READS 13.00 OR LESS OR THE VOLTAGE STARTS DROPPING, THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT CHARGING. BEFORE BUYING AN ALTERNATOR, GET A GOOD FUSE TESTER, CHECK EVERY FUSE,, FUSEBOX UNDER THE HOOD & THE FUSEBOX INSIDE THE VEHICLE. IF ALL FUSES CHECK GOOD & BATTERY VOLTAGE IS LOW WITH MOTOR RUNNING, THE ALTERNATOR MUST BE BAD.

if the starter is clicking, try tapping on it with a hard piece of wood, like that of a hammer handle, while someone tries to start the car. if it starts, replace the starter. also make sure electrcal connectins on the starter are tight and clean. and check the starter relay if applicable

2001 suburban wont crank,clicks under steering column,battery is good,lights stay on,been doin off and on,but been 4 days.wont crank


Check battery conection first. Both posts on the battery terminal must be free of any debris or acid build up. Clean with baking soda and water. If it is the original battery then there is a chance that it may be going bad. You would still have lights but just not enough juice to start your truck. If the battery is new then the next thing would be your starter. Go in that order, cheapest first.

Car wont start. when key is turned i get weird clicks.


You said you checked your battery, did you check volts and amps? It's possible that your battery is not functioning properly. You may need a new one. Does it start if you try to jumpstart it?
